NEW GLARUS — New Glarus students in grades 5-8 participated in the Greater Dane Anthology Project recently. Every year, students from over 30 school districts submit entries for potential publication in the Greater Dane Anthology. This collection of student work celebrates outstanding art, cartoons, editorials, short stories, and poems written by area fifth through eighth graders. 

Judging for this year’s contest was held at Oregon High School. There were nearly 500 submissions and only 30% of those were chosen for publication.

New Glarus had tremendous success with the submissions, with a publication rate for submissions over 60%. 

Each year, one piece of writing from each grade level is selected to be read at an awards ceremony in the spring. This year, a New Glarus student, Leah Missig, was chosen to be one of the four readers at that event.
